AJAX - Return Arrays and Structs to your JavaScript with XML

The VDF AJAX Library provides the functionality for developers to call published methods within a WBO and receive a return value (for Functions). This is done using a Remote Method Invokation (RMI). Using RMI's for returning a single datatype is fairly straight-forward. If you want to return a Struct, Array , or an Array of Structs you need to do some more work. Remember, you are returning these datatypes to JavaScript and there is no direct translation from a Windows Struct or Array to a JavaScript Struct or Array.
